CSUN New Student Orientations have been welcoming new students to campus over the past several weeks and the campus is gearing up to welcome many new faculty members as well. In fact, the New Faculty Orientation will be held August 19 and 20 in the Library’s Jack & Florence Ferman Presentation Room. Coordinated by Faculty Development, a program of the CIELO Center, the two-day orientation will provide faculty with campus information to help orient them in their new setting. There will also be a variety of diverse sessions to help support a smooth transition into the 2015-16 academic year. Those attending the event will have an opportunity to meet other new faculty members and CSUN campus leaders. Current technologies utilized on campus and within the classroom will be discussed and opportunities to connect with students and faculty will be explored. Student performances will entertain and engage attendees. Finally, those new faculty members attending the orientation will also participate in President Harrison’s Fall Welcome Address at the Valley Performing Arts Center.
We at the Library are especially excited about the orientation. Library Subject Specialists will be present on August 20 and take new faculty members on a tour of the Library. Of course, these are just highlights of the event since so much more will be shared. The campus orientation promises to provide two days filled with ideas and support for creating an amazing first year on campus and within the Library. We welcome all new CSUN faculty!
